	HTML editors, and browsers used to verify pages,
	should never apply error recovery, except that an
	editor may apply error recovery by correcting the 
	source.

	One of the reasons for the fact that most web pages
	are invalid HTML is that people validate them with 
	browsers which attempt error recovery, so they end up
	designing for the error recovery behaviour, not to the
	specification.
